The Population Reference Bureau (PRB) is now accepting applications for its 2013-2014 Policy Communication Fellows Program. The program is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). The goals of the Policy Fellows program are:
-To understand the process by which research informs the policy environment.
-To learn various ways to communicate findings to policy audiences.
The Policy Fellows program, initiated in the 1980s, has close to 400 alumni. The program aims to bridge the gap between research findings and the policy development process. While research often has profound policy implications, it must be communicated effectively to a variety of nontechnical audiences in order to have an impact. The program has three parts:
-Washington Workshop: Participants will attend a two-week workshop at PRB in Washington, D.C., scheduled for Aug. 5-16, 2013. During the workshop the participants interact with PRB staff and outside experts active in policy research and communications.
-Practicum: During the 2013-2014 academic year, Fellows will apply the lessons learned at the Washington workshop to prepare three written assignments and an oral presentation for policy audiences, based on their dissertations or related research topics. During the year, Fellows receive feedback from PRB staff on their work.
-PAA Workshop: The Fellows formally present their research findings at a workshop that will be held prior to the 2014 Population Association of America (PAA) Annual Meeting. During the workshop, Fellows make 12-minute policy presentations to the other Fellows and to PRB and guest discussants.
What does it cover?
PRB covers travel, lodging, and per diem expenses for each Fellow to attend the Washington workshop and the PAA Annual Meeting. PRB pays for the PAA registration for each Fellow and awards stipends of $2,000 to cover Fellows’ research expenses.
